Designs due Aug. 12 for Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp
Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2017
Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp from Monday, Aug. 1, until 4 p.m. Friday, Aug.
The trout and salmon stamp validation is sold
for $10 along with fishing licenses, and for an extra 75 cents, purchasers can
receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75.
Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and
Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the
design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are
used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of
Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brown trout designs are not eligible this year.
Artists are prohibited from using any
photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually
issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will
take place Thursday, Aug. 18, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St.
